TEDxPeachtree: Elli Kaplan – Early Detection of Alzheimer’s DiseaseThe Alzheimer's Site
What if, long before patients were so far advanced in Alzheimer’s they were symptomatic, doctors were able to diagnose the disease’s presence in patients? The possibility for early detection opens up an incredible opportunity for new drugs and new treatment methods that might help prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer’s.
But how do you detect Alzheimer’s in a patient that isn’t showing some of the key symptoms that are today’s hallmarks of the disease? Elli Kaplan presents groundbreaking new research that gives hope for the possibility of early detection in the future.
